dishwashing liquid and warm water. Mix in a bucket and drop the filter in and let it sit for a while then rinse it off with water from the inside out.

Re: AFE stage 2 dry filter

I have used Simple green with very good results. I had a deal that mine came with the kit. Simple Green IMO works better and you can get it at just about anywhere. I have not noticed any issues with the filter media. I mix it with water in a pail and let it soak for a while then rinse well. Let dry.

Re: AFE stage 2 dry filter

Clean just like the others have described and be careful not to disturb the filter media. No heavy force of water and do not use an air hose to dry it. It will separate the filter media fibers and reduce the effectiveness of filtering.
A filter sock which is a thin material that covers the filter helps to keep the heavy debris out of the filter pleats.

This is only an example of the pre-filter sock. There are several color options and logos on the internet.

Re: AFE stage 2 dry filter

Sorry I forgot to add that was a oiled washable filter not a dry washable one. I think they actually can use the same cleaning chemicals but have not had to personally. On wash what I actually do is let it soak over night or a few hours. Then I let the water run over the out side and then allow the water to run inside and push everything outward so am debris is pushed out the direction it came in ( to the outside. Then I give it a few dunks and swirls in a clean bucket of water only.

Re: AFE stage 2 dry filter

Knock all the big crap off and spray it out with water. Let the filter dry, then re-install.
